World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, sightseeing, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, and get great views at Calton Hill.

For ratings, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Edinburgh travel planner.

Cardiff to Edinburgh is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Cardiff in November since evenings lows in Edinburgh dip to 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Fri) to allow time to fly back home.
